Affordable luxury Dec 20, 2014
I spent only 2 nights here at the Nexus, I decided to treat myself to something luxurious as it was Christmas and all. A present to myself. I don't normally stay in 5* places, I'm much more of a dorm in a hostel kinda person. I looked at the nearby shangri-la but at more than double the price I opted for here. I think I paid around 900$ Hk a night which is around 60gbp. In my world extremely cheap for a hotel of this standard.

The room was enormous, clean with a sea view balcony. The bathroom had a bathtub and separate walk in shower. The only disappointment to my room was you couldn't connect to wifi unless you were in the lobby/ pool or bar areas.

The facilities were great, a nice pool with loungers, a huge private beach, a golf course, nearby waterpark, even a pet monitor lizard, along with various restaurants of different cuisine, a Chinese, a grill bar and a European one (seemed a bit vague to me). I ate at the grill near the beach and the food was reasonably priced, around 30ringgit for a main course. It served steaks, burgers, pizzas etc. the buffet breakfast was fantastic, everything from cereal to noodles or sushi.

I also visited the spa and had a treatment to soothe my sunburn. I think around 200ringgit for a 1hr treatment. The waiting area was great too, a pool surrounded by loungers, dimly lit whilst you were served tea. It was very relaxing. In the spa was also a sauna steamroom, plunge pool and jet baths but I didn't try these out.

My only downside was location, tea it was bliss to be out of the city but it was far if you wanted to explore kota Kinabalu. The hotel offered a free shuttle but not in the evenings. My advice would be spend time in kk first then a few days here and don't leave the resort.

Five star beach hotel! May 15, 2012
Its a five out of five!

The only thing i could complain about was that i had a few cloudy days, hardly the hotels fault.

Beach is awesome,. soooooo long, and so tranquil. There is so much space for every guest at this resort that you fell like you are alone and private.

The food was really good, and the presentation of it was amazing, even the simple lunch at the beach bar was presented as if it was the nobel banquet dinner.

Spa was fantastic, we took a whole day spa, and i swear that the spa feels like a roman bath and very fresh.

The rooms were also very nice, clean and spacious. If you get bored you can take a walk along the beach, i did for many hours and it never ended... Just look at the pictures and then go. I mean it's Borneo!

And check out the hotel pet. ;)

So so resort, excellent location Apr 25, 2011
I won't recommend this one strongly as I got bed bugs, my whole back is red now...! Not a great view actually.

Ask clean bed sheets upon arrival! Excellent location though...!!! The beach is beautiful and well located.
